Grounded Feature Board

Grounded August Update

Welcome to the Grounded Feature Board! Our goal from the start was to include the community in the development in Grounded, and with that, we want to be as transparent as possible with features we plan to work on. This feature board includes high-level details on plans for Grounded, and we would like to update it as we progress each month. As a caveat, we are still in active development, and this board is subject to change based on your feedback, the state of development, what's best for the game, the unknown, and our future plans. Nothing is set in stone and features could be moved up, pushed back, or unfortunately removed. Details on certain features may remain vague until we are more confident in the idea, and we want to keep a few things secret to keep your experience exciting and unexpected. This also doesn't contain everything that we plan on doing, so please continue to provide your feedback to shape Grounded into the best possible game it can be. Thank you!

August Update 0.2.0

This month we brought numerous bug fixes, fine-tuning, and changes to the game, but we also released new content! 13 new perks can be discovered, BURG.L now has two new daily quest types available to assign you, we added six new recipes ranging from base furniture to a new armor piece, water fleas can now be found in the flooded areas, and a new special guest can now visit the yard and leave behind some feathers you can harvest and use for crafting purposes.
